velocarte

This repository contains the tools and files for the rendering and pulishing of the cycling-oriented, OpenStreetMap based slippy map at http://velocarte66.fr.

Requirements:

  • osm2pgsql
  • PostgreSql 9.1.9
  • PostGis 1.5
  • Mapnik 2.1
  • Tilemill 0.10.1
  • OpenLayers 2.11

The map is composed of several layers:

  • CarteVeloBase - the base layer
  • CarteVeloItin - cyclotourism itineraries
  • CarteVeloRoutes - Small roads overlay
  • CarteVeloChemins - Tracks overlay
  • CarteVeloContour - Contour lines

The map is created under Linux with the following tool chain:

  • creation of a coast line shape file: . download the file land-polygons-split-4326.zip from http://data.openstreetmapdata.com/ . open the file with QGis: Layer - Add vector layer . select the polygons which cover the area of the map . save the selection with "Layer - save selection as vector file" as CarteVeloBase/layers/land/coast.shp

  • create a file default.bbox for the map area in the data subdirectory. Have a look at the sample files for the format.

  • launch the mk_cartevelo.sh script. This should do the job.

TODO:

  • describe ho to create the contour lines layer
